Whitney Houston Estate Can't Beat the Emmys ... Court Blocks Auction!

6/24/2016 6:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0624-whitney-houston-oscar-GETTY-01Whitney Houston's estate and the Whitney fan who already bid $10,000 for her 1986 Emmy are both outta luck -- a federal judge has shut down an auction for the trophy.

Heritage Auctions had put the statuette up for grabs, but TMZ broke the story ... the Television Academy opposed the auction, citing its rule that all Emmys must be returned to them if the winner or winner's heirs no longer want it.

Heritage was hawking the Emmy on behalf of Whitney's estate, but the Academy sought and was granted a temporary restraining order to prevent the live auction from going down Friday.

The online auction had already begun, and as we told you ... someone put up a $10k bid. Sorry, Charlie.

Heritage says it will respect the court's decision and the Emmy will be returned to the Houston family.

6/23/2016 8:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant took a victory lap after jurors sided with his legendary band in the battle over "Stairway to Heaven."

Plant and guitarist Jimmy Page testified in the trial where they were accused of ripping off part of the 'Stairway' guitar riff from the band Spirit -- but this was the first time we saw him outside court.

Just a few hours after the jury ruled in Zepp's favor on Thursday ... Plant headed to LAX and got the Led outta town. He wasn't real chatty, but made sure to show his appreciation for the court decision.

Heaven knows ... he's no Robin Thicke.

'Deadliest Catch' Captain Busted for Bad Pot ... Of the Crab Variety

6/24/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0623-sean-dwyer-discovery-01"Deadliest Catch" captain Sean Dwyer was in hot water after officials discovered his crab fishing gear wasn't up to par ... TMZ has learned.

According to court docs ... Alaska's Fish & Game officials busted Dwyer for having a crab pot on the F/V Brenna A with an undersized escape mechanism. For you landlubbers -- crab pots must have an 18" hatch held closed by biodegradable ties. It's designed to give crabs a chance to escape pots that get lost at sea. 

We're told Dwyer's escape hole missed the mark by 3 inches. The fix only required one snip of twine, but it still cost him $1,500 in fines, and now he's on probation for 2 years.

Gotta mind your holes up in Alaska.

Sinead O'Connor Suicide Watch on Chicago Bridges

6/23/2016 4:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Cops are on the hunt for Sinead O'Connor after someone in her family told cops she's threatening to kill herself.

Chicago PD got a call from Irish authorities saying Sinead contacted her family an hour ago and said she was suicidal and planned to jump off a bridge in the Chicago area.

We're told cops actually spotted someone who looked like she fit the profile but it wasn't Sinead.

TMZ obtained scanner audio from the PD giving officers the heads up. We're told there's not an active search ... but cops were told to be on the lookout.

Sinead's been struggling with depression lately -- just last month she was reported missing and her friends and family feared suicide -- she was later found at a Chicago hotel.

Jermaine Jackson Wife Files for Divorce

6/23/2016 3:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0623-jermaine-jackson-halima-rashid-tmz-getty-02Jermaine Jackson's wife is filing to divorce him and predictably ... she says the trouble started the day she got busted for attacking him.

Halima Rashid filed the divorce petition on Tuesday, citing irreconcilable differences, and listing November 28, 2015 as the date of separation.

If that date sounds familiar it's because TMZ broke the story ... Halima was arrested for felony corporal injury that day. During a fight on Thanksgiving weekend, Jermaine allegedly spit on her and she allegedly bit him on the leg.

Halima is seeking spousal support. They got married in 2004, but don't have any kids together ... so no child support issues. She was wife #3 for Jermaine.

Her domestic violence case was tossed because prosecutors couldn't determine who was the aggressor in the fight.

Rep. Alan Grayson Pay Attention, Paul Ryan ... We'll Show You How to Do Your Job

6/23/2016 3:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan wouldn't know how to run Congress if his job came with an instruction manual ... according to Florida Congressman Alan Grayson.

Grayson -- a Democrat participating in the sit-in for a gun control vote -- threw major shade at Ryan just after the political protest was suspended until legislators return in July.

We asked him about Ryan saying the Dems were just pulling a "publicity stunt," and that's when he went off.

Keep in mind, Grayson's constituency includes Orlando ... so his passion on the topic makes sense.

Exclusive Details

0623-kelly-mcgillis-top-gun-GETTY-01"Top Gun" star Kelly McGillissays she was the victim of a scary home break-in and her intruder got physical.

McGillis tells TMZ she walked into her North Carolina home Friday night to find a woman standing in her kitchen with a young girl. Kelly says when she asked who the lady was ... she said Kelly had been stalking her on Twitter.

Kelly's baffled ... she says she's never met the intruder nor had any interaction with her. 

The actress says she tried to escape, but the woman attacked ... knocking Kelly to the ground, scratching her and pulling her hair. During the struggle, she managed to set off her car alarm which scared the intruder just long enough for Kelly to break away.

She says she screamed for help from her front yard, but no one -- including a neighbor she says was home -- came to her rescue. Instead, she had to drive down the road to someone else's house to call 911.

Police arrived and busted Laurence Marie Dorn for burglary, larceny, stalking, assault and battery, and interfering with emergency communication.

She's still in jail on a $60k bond.
